I’m not sure how it happened, but somewhere amidst all of the excitement yesterday, we completely neglected to talk about the new Infinity Blade game. For those who missed it, Apple brought Chair’s Donald Mustard up on stage during its iPhone event to introduce Infinity Blade III.

The move, of course, was to help Apple show off the power of the iPhone 5s’ new A7 processor, but it was a big moment for Infinity Blade fans as well. After the ‘Dungeons’ title was canceled, the future of the franchise was uncertain. But Chair put all those concerns to rest yesterday…

Infinity Blade III, which Chair is referring to as the ‘conclusion’ of the trilogy, introduces various new worlds, gameplay concepts, and characters. Gamers can now play as both Siris, from the first two Infinity Blades, and Isa, introduced in IB II, and each one has their own attributes.

IGN has more details on the game:

“Although Infinity Blade III tells a sophisticated linear story (Chair estimates the game contains nearly 45 minutes of cutscenes), players will have more freedom than ever in how they tackle the game’s various challenges. From The Hideout, Siris’ new base of operations, players can select from a world map which of several fortress strongholds they want to assault, compared to just a single major playable location in both IB1 and IB2. The Hideout will also be home to a variety of eccentric allies Siris and Isa recruit along the way.”

And here’s the Infinity Blade III trailer:

It appears that Chair is going to be officially calling the game ‘Infinity Blade III Reborn.’ The Universal app will be priced at $6.99, and will be compatible with the iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch 4, and newer. To learn more about the new iPhone 5S, click here. And you can watch the event here.

    I must be the only person that can’t get onto Infinity Blade. I want to like this game but the gameplay just bores the hell out of me which is a shame becausethe story seems good. It’s funny because I got into Bloodmasque and that’s lretty similar. Completed the whole game and maxed out my char.

      I really enjoyed the first one, but never could get into the 2nd one. I’m not really sure if I’ll actually purchase this one or not…

      I don’t like their battle system that’s why I never even bother to download it.

      You are NOT the only one. It’s boring and slow-paced for me. It’s a shame, the graphics are just amazing.

  • Tom García

    An iPod Touch 4th generation running this game? Are you serious?

    • Saúl Ga

      It’ll run with the same graphics as the Infinity Blade I

  • Dan

    I rarely regret making the move to android, but this one stings 🙁
    Looks like a great game.

    Plus I don’t like this game
    First gaming rule is : Better graphics doesn’t mean better game !

    • Singed

      I enjoyed the IB II and if I had the choice, I’d pay 7 bucks for it.
      Glad I got it for free, thanks to the anniversary!

    • bob

      it often goes on sale. I got IB 1 and 2 for free.

  • Jay Won

    I can’t tell the difference between the graphics of any of the infinity blade series

    • Danuel Carr

      On ipad 3 and up I noticed a stark difference in graphics between IB1&2. It really takes a retina ipad to fully appreciate the graphics.

  • Singed

    I’m pretty excited for this one, really enjoyed the IB II, however, I am concerned that my iPad 2 won’t run this :/
    EDIT: Just learned to read. iPad 2 will run it. That will most likely mean the graphics will be kinda mediocre. :/

  • seyss

    this game will only be nice when they remove rail movement

  • Roger Riekki
